* The BBC's ''Series/EastEnders'' is pretty popular in the States, so much so that there was a huge outcry when BBC America pulled it from their schedule. North Carolina is said to be home to America's biggest EastEnders fanclub.

* ''Series/Manimal'' was quite badly received when it first aired and was cancelled after only eight episodes in the States. But oddly enough, it became popular overseas, namely in South Africa.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' was very popular in the Philippines; many a young person's face or those in their old years who watched it as kids will light up at the mention of ''Kuya'' Robert- Kuya is a Filipino word for a big brother figure and Robert was DubNameChange for the protagonist Kotaro Minami. It was also the GatewaySeries in Indonesia. Black, [[CompletelyDifferentTitle there known as Ksatria Baja Hitam]] (Black Iron Knight), is considered ''the'' essential Rider, more so than the original. Finally, it's well liked in Brazil. Alas, Black and its sequel ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' were the only installments of the entire Rider franchise (not counting the US adaptations) that aired there in the 1990s. It would only be in 2003 when Kamen Rider returned, this time on cable (with ''Kamen Rider Ryuki'' and its US spinoff) and in 2014 on free television with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''.

** Chilean TV stations still air re-runs of the show (and of Chespirito's normal comedy show), and welcomed Chespirito and Co. warmly whenever they dropped by.



** Just to get an idea how popular the show is in Latin America, when Chespirito died, most of the people who attented to his funeral were foreigners. While there were some Mexicans, they were a minority compared with the foreign fans of the show.

* ''Series/VeronicaMars'' was very acclaimed in the US, where it aired on UPN, but it was also the definition of a rating flop, earning only 3 million and thus became a target for ScrewedByTheNetwork. It however became an internet sensation in The Netherlands after the channel Nederland 3 aired it and canceled it after one season, after which plenty were streaming the show from the net, attracting attention from Dutch internetters everywhere. It also rose to even more acclaim and love in Belgium, where there is a DVD release of all 3 seasons. Similarly, it was beloved in Germany, to the point where it was one of the few European countries to get all three seasons on DVD (most places only got seasons 1 & 2 until the release of TheMovie in 2014 prompted a re-release under "The Complete Series").

** Though it's not reached total cultural saturation in the UK quite as much as ''Series/{{Friends}}'' did, you'd never know that from how often it's shown on UK TV, with the number of ''The Big Bang Theory'' reruns on E4 comparable that of ''Friends'' before they lost the rights to the latter. They regularly run somewhere between four and six older episodes twice a day and have done for years, which seems to be a fair judge of its popularity. Plus, if you've got a British friend who only watches one American sitcom, odds are ''very'' high that it's either ''The Big Bang Theory'' or ''Modern Family'' (and ''[=BBT=]'' has the added advantage of being on a [=FreeView=] channel).

** ''YesMinister'' and ''YesPrimeMinister''. These shows were so popular that one theatre ordered a play to be written based on the show's premise with the beloved characters. The roles were performed by those actors who dubbed them in the series. The play was a smashing hit and it is still on. In TheNewTens.

* Overlapping with PeripheryDemographic, Australian soap operas ''HomeAndAway'' and ''Neighbours'' are incredibly popular in Ireland. And their biggest fans are college students. So much so that the actors often get booked to appear at Irish night clubs, especially in towns with a big student population.

* Australian dating show Taken Out may have only lasted for one year in its home country, but its format was sold to various others. Most notably China, where it spawned two versions, one of which is known as Fei Cheng Wu Rao and has become a major ratings success, with twice as many viewers as its nearest timeslot competitor. Bizarrely enough, Fei Cheng Wu Rao is broadcast in Australia (with English subtitles) as If You Are the One.
